St. Alban's Anglican-Episcopal Church

A church enveloped in tranquility and warmth that conducts worship in English

While worship is conducted in Japanese at the neighboring St. Andrew's Cathedral, Tokyo, St. Alban's Anglican-Episcopal Church conducts worship and sermons in English. Within a verdant environment that could be termed an oasis within Tokyo, international connections are formed between people of various races, ages, and professions, all on equal footing. As anyone can freely pray or meditate at any time on weekdays, there are even some people who visit during their lunch or break. The wooden architecture, designed by the American architect Antonin Raymond, who was a long-time resident of Japan, speaks to the desire for visitors to be enveloped in tranquility and warmth and for their hearts to be filled with peace. The church's meditation time, which is led by a pipe organ, adds color to the sublime atmosphere.
